25 million people interested in joining APC – Yahaya Bello
Alhaji Yahaya Bello, the Chairman APC Sensitization and Mobilization Committee has said the rebuilding of the ruling party from bottom-up as directed by President Buhari is gaining momentum.
Bello, who doubles as the Kogi State Governor, said that no fewer than 25 million people have shown interest in joining the party.
He made this known at his polling unit 11 Agassa, Ahachi, Okeneba ward in Okene Local Government Area of the state during the ongoing registration and revalidation exercise of the ruling APC.
He said also that in line with the president’s advise, he is ready to build the party from bottom-up and make the party the strongest in the country.
“We are charged to mobilise, sensitize, educate all Nigerian citizens those that are in the party and those that are not in the party to join APC, all the youths, women those in other political parties come and join the party.
“It is only in APC that you can realise your dream”, he said.
Bello had earlier boasted in January that the ongoing revalidation exercise of the APC would signal the transformation of the party.
The Kogi State Governor said by the time the APC was done with its membership registration and repositioning, other democracies around the world would come to Nigeria to understudy the party’s democracy.

Bello said, “I want to assure you that we shall move to the field immediately. We are going to swing into action. We are going to liaise with every stakeholder within the party and across party lines. We are going to generate serious awareness.
“The APC will continue to win every election in this country. By the time we are done and all the registration of new members and revalidation of existing members are done in the country, APC will not just be the largest in Africa but we’re going to call on even the developed nations to come and learn from APC in Nigeria.
“We shall even teach some of our brothers who have just concluded elections that were rancorous. I will not mention names but we’re going to be an institution of political and politics in Nigeria.”
